The Art Year program is closing out the spring trimester at ActonArt by getting weird and wild with surrealism!

Surrealism plays with the viewers perceptions of reality, and what exists within the world of the painting. 

Just a friendly reminder that we’re registering for summer courses, so be sure to check out our website for details and to sign up!

In the Manga classes here at ActonArt, students were taking a quick dip with watercolor!

Watercolor is a pretty traditional manga medium that predates the use of copics. Here, traditional linework is incorporated with washy layers of color.
